How do you escape the rat race and dump the nine to five?

escape the rat race

So you want to escape the rat race?


How badly do you want it?

Think hard about this and say out loud a score out of one hundred.

Lets say that zero is ‘I have no desire at all to become a free of the 9 to 5’ and one hundred is ‘I will do whatever it takes, I will work eighty hours a week on my passion, I will give up drinking with the boys/girls, I will give up taking vacations for the next five years, I will go without sex if you say that’s what is required…

I don’t care what it takes I am doing it’.

Now think of your score!

escape the rat raceIf your score is under ninety-nine, you are in trouble.

Maybe you shot straight out of the gate with a loud and proud one hundred because that’s obviously the score I am looking for but most people are naturally a little reserved.

They try to be positive but not crazy positive and so they say something like ninety percent or heck even ninety-five percent.

Let’s work with ninety-five percent as an example.

The fact that they bought this book says that they are pretty certain that they want to be wealthy, but maybe there is a something in their head pulling them back from the total commitment level that is really required.

You see people get trapped working for the man because our social programming dictates that’s what you do. We are kept hungry for money by the system.

The company we work for will pay us just enough to prevent us leaving and not a penny more.

The system is stacked against the average man because we are taught some very erroneous stuff about wealth and abundance from a young age.

Perhaps the people who score themselves under 100 were just told enough times that wanting money is bad or greedy.

Or perhaps they have heard that only the corrupt people of the world are rich and it is more pure to live a normal everyday life. A lot of people get very spiritual about this and say that money is not important in the grand scheme of this wonderful life we have been gifted.

Love, peace, and happiness are all more important than money.

I can guarantee you that any person who ever said anything like that didn’t have a lot of money, most of them were stone cold broke.

These sorts of statements sound like they come from a higher, more moral place and can make us feel ashamed about craving wealth.

Do not listen to these statements; they actually come from a very low and dark place.

You see, even though a statement such as ‘love is more important than money’ sounds like an enlightened thing to say, it is making a dangerous assumption.

It assumes that you can’t have both at the same time. It’s a bit like saying oxygen is more important than nitrogen when it comes to breathing. That may sound logical but the reality is we don’t breathe pure oxygen and if we did we would die pretty quickly.

The air we breathe is made up of 78.09% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.04% carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases.

If you only allowed yourself the oxygen then it would attack and kill your central nervous system and you would drop down dead.

The same is true of love, happiness, peace and any other fluffy ideal that you can come up with.

I am not denying that love is important, vital in fact but it is not a universal solution to all your needs. You can’t pay your credit card bill with love, if you get sick and go to a hospital they won’t accept a huge donation of happiness in return for your treatment.

Let’s be absolutely clear about some things, yes love is important but you can’t compare it to money and say it’s more important.

If you are serious about planning to escape the rat race and living your passion then you need to decide now and take action. Click here to check out my how to become rich course – Millionaire University
